Quadriplegia (losing the use of limbs/extremities below the neck) is usually a result of a traumatic injury to the spinal cord or spinal cord nervous tissue. Quadriplegia injuries are extremely dangerous and usually require surgery followed by physical therapy and a lifetime of assisted care. Many quadriplegics lack the function to take care of themselves on their own and need a full- or part-time therapist or nurse to aid them.
Quadriplegia injuries fall under two categories: complete and incomplete. A complete quadriplegia injury is when you can no longer use or feel anything below your neck. In an incomplete quadriplegic injury, you may be able to feel some things or even partially use some of your limbs and other bodily functions. In either case, there is often nerve damage around the injury, and many quadriplegics suffer from “phantom limb syndrome.”
